How Do I Help a Hurting Friend? (Workshop)

This year we will have a few education based events in the meetup group for those who are interested in learning more whether it is life skills, social etiquette or simply meeting fellow meetupers who are into selfhelp.

Do you have a friend who's going through a tough chapter of his/her life? Do you want to help but not sure how? (Or just want to help without making the situation worse?). I'm going to a free workshop on the topic of how to help a hurting friend and you're all invited to come out with me for it. We may go for bbt or grab some food afterwards.

--------------Event description----------------
This event is an opportunity to learn from Dr. Rod Wilson on how to better understand hurting people and how to speak effectively into their lives. While the professional side of people-helping is both necessary and important, many of us are called to speak into the lives of friends and family members who are hurting.

Baked goods and coffee will be provided. This is a free event hosted in the Sanctuary. Registration is encouraged.

Guest speaker Rod J.K. Wilson (Ph.D.) is the president of Regent College, and professor of counselling and psychology. Rod Wilson was born in Dublin, Ireland and immigrated as a child to Canada with his parents. He has served as president of Regent College since 2000. Originally trained as a clinical psychologist, Rod pursued theological training after the completion of his doctoral work. He has been involved in the field of counselling and consulting for over 30 years and held various positions at Tyndale College and Seminary in Toronto. In 2004, Rod received an honourary doctorate from Trinity Western University in recognition of his gifts and leadership and acuity of vision. He is the author of Counseling and Community and How Do I Help a Hurting Friend?—both award-wining books—and the co-author of Exploring Your Anger and Helping Angry People. How Do I Help a Hurting Friend? has been translated into Chinese and German. He lives in Vancouver, BC with his wife, Bev.

------------------Disclaimer--------------

    I would like to learn about this topic, but would there be a later session (say 2pm) or another workshop in future?

      Sounds good. Or after you learn at the workshop, you can host another event and be the speaker to share with us. :)

      i think it would be better to get a trained counsellor to do the presentation as these information are to be used to support vulnerable people. I'll keep that in mind, we may have a coffee night and invite one over.
